ECIU Students about the University of 2040

Learners

Event

November 6, 2018

In a unique event that took place in Brussels on 6 November 2018, students of the ECIU universities challenged conventional thinking and discussed the role of universities in 2040. They agreed that in 2040, there will still exist a physical university with lecturers. However, future-fit universities will be agile institutions offering tailor-made and curiosity-driven education. They extrapolated that the focus will be on soft skills self-development, interdisciplinarity, and obtaining competences to solve challenges with societal relevance. For the future, the participating students underlined that students need to be included in the process of establishing the new university and in an open governance structure.
